The 2018 invention from Betsoft is a 3D slot game that comes with relatively low variance, amid a shower of Candy Crush like icons on a colourful setting. There is no specific theme for the game, but if you are a fan of Candy Crush you will probably recognise most within this slot. The game has an RTP of 96.42%, which is pretty attractive.
With cartoon graphics moulded into a blue sky, if there is a theme to the game then it is a very bright one! This is a seven reel game which has a different mechanic to a normal slot, in that rather than pay-lines providing the winning spins, it’s clusters that determine when a player has won.
There are plenty of icons in the game, ranging from orange bars to pink pears. You will see purple hexagons, blue triangles and green planet type shapes. There are also red hearts and gold boxes and, just like in Candy Crush, you are looking to match a set of these icons, which all have the same level of significance.
Betting and Winning
The coin range for Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped is 0.01 and 1.00 and the top jackpot for the game is 28,305 coins. At first, the game can seem a little complicated with shapes everywhere, but the underlying thing to remember is that to activate the possibilities of winning you are looking to match up five of the same icon in the one spin.
The first thing you will be looking for in the game is to trigger a Candy Bomb. In order to do this, you must land five or more clusters in the one go. The more symbols you get in your cluster the more damage the bomb does. Five clusters affect an area of six candies, while 10 clusters get a maximum of 20 candies.
Each cluster you make will leave behind a wild symbol and it is these that open up the possibility of bigger and better wins.
Another thing to keep an eye on in this game is the level-up guide on the right-hand side of the screen. Each time you see a level-up symbol in the reels you go up by one. This begins as soon as you start the game.
Each level you go up sees special candies added to the game, revealed by a chocolate egg coming onto the reels and exploding to leave behind the new candy. Putting it simply, the more you see going on the better it is for you!
Free spin symbols pop up on the game too, and if you land a cluster of four of them you will get five free spins. Five symbols earn seven free spins and 15 free spin symbols reward you with a massive 27 free spins. These can be added to during the Free Spins round as well!
It might take a little while to understand everything that is going on in this game, but lovers of Candy Crush will be hooked on this one in an instant. Its attraction is that there is regularly something going on and is that rare breed of a classic game on a 3D slot. This is an entertaining low variant slot that is strongly recommended.
